Drake’s favourite restaurant in Toronto is Sotto Sotto, an Italian restaurant in Yorkville with a second location in Oakville.

We know that he thinks it’s the best in Toronto thanks to Israel Adesanya, a UFC fighter and¬†Middleweight Champion, who shared a video on social media of his virtual dinner with Drake on Saturday, July 2.

During the chat, Adesanya asked Drake what he was eating. “I’m at Sotto Sotto, it’s the best restaurant in Toronto,” Drake said.

Owned by Marisa Rocca from Rome and founded in 1993, the restaurant’s menu is full of delicious Italian offerings including pasta dishes priced at $25.95 each.

Keen Drake fans might not be surprised by this shout-out because he’s made no secret about being a longtime fan.

He’s often at the Yorkville spot and has even alluded to it in his music before, like in “Pound Cake” where he even name-drops the restaurant. He even hung out with the entire Canadian soccer team after a big win once.

Drake’s not the only one to notice the Italian spot.
